Heimaey is the largest island (13.4 sq.km.) in the Westman Islands or Vestmannaeyjar cluster, 7.4 km off the south coast of Iceland. The Landnáma Icelandic record states it was first settled in about 900. It is the only island in Vestmannaeyjar that is populated, with around 5000 inhabitants. One night in January 1973 a volcanic eruption of the mountain Eldfell began on Heimaey. The ground started to quake and fissures erupted spraying lava and ash into the air. The encroaching lava flow threatened to destroy the harbour that was the main source of livelihood for most of the town.

During the night the population was evacuated by boat, as the fishing fleet was in dock. The eruption lasted over 6 months. Meanwhile the townspeople constantly sprayed the lava with seawater, causing it to solidify and be diverted, thus minimising destruction. Eventually half the town was crushed by ash but the island increased in area by 20%. The Westman Islands are one of the wonders of nature, surrounded by mountains, islands, volcanoes and seabirds, and boast one of the most beautiful and extraordinary 18-hole golf course in the world.

A sign reading “Pompei” points the way to an area destroyed by the volcanic eruption, which left one person dead and prompted the evacuation of dozens of families. Some of the structures have now emerged following 6 years of an archaeological excavation begun six years ago. At the museum, visitors can revisit 1973, see a snapshot of life on Heimaey, and also get insight into the devastation wreaked by the volcano. A few islanders stayed away, but the majority rebuilt their houses closer to Vestmannaeyjar, the island's only town.
